TNT Speedway Reopens
ONEIDA COUNTY - TNT Speedway near Three Lakes got new ownership for 2015.

Now a full summer of racing is in order.

"This track had sentimental value to me because my father took me here when I was younger so it was more of a family thing and we wanted to turn it into a family place," said Co-Owner James Koga.

"This is one of the best tracks in the Northwoods," Koga said. "I mean it has the highest banked (clay) oval from what we did research on. We widened it a bit, we put brand new clay in. We basically built it from a racers standpoint."

The drivers enjoy being at the track.

"It's been pretty good over the years," Truck racer John Johnson said. "I've raced here a lot. I'm from Lac Du Flambeau and it's just a good place to be on weekends."

"It's a lot of skill more than how fast you drive it," Johnson said. "It's what you can do in the corners, where you can pass and where you can't."

Not anyone can just jump in a car and race at the track.

"This looks easy but it's by far not easy," said Midwestern Mod racer Guy Carley.
